Before defensive lineman Chris Canty signed with the Ravens this offseason, he visited the Green Bay Packers who weren’t willing to sign off on his knee after undergoing a physical, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Signed to a three-year, $8 million deal to bolster the Ravens defensive line, Canty missed the first six games for the New York Giants last season after having offseason knee surgery. He then suffered an MCL sprain in December that prevented him from playing in the regular-season finale. His knee didn’t pass the scrutiny of Green Bay Packers’ team doctors who reportedly wouldn’t sign off on his physical after the team hosted Canty on a free-agent visit. The Ravens’ top decision makers voiced no such concern and all signs point to Canty being ready to go.
I find it very interesting that some teams consider a player more healthy then others. But that’s the world we live in. People are always going to have their own opinion. Hopefully Canty’s knee holds up the way the Ravens believe it will.
